Over on CAPS, fully 144 of the 205 members who have rated Winnebago -- or 70% -- believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward. Among the entire bearish population are mainlinetramp and TSIF.

Last month, mainlinetramp seemed satisfied as a customer, but also feared for investors: "I own a Winnebago RV (itasca model) and love it. But the company is just in the wrong place at the wrong time with this economy crisis."

In a pitch from one week earlier, TSIF echoes that bearish sentiment and writes:

oversized luxury, non-essential, high ticket item in a recession. Even those who want to tour the U.S. and look for a cheap hot springs resort in the desert and who have anything left of their retirement money will probably be buying these monsters on the "slightly used" market, where bankruptcy repossessions and take my RV please inventory abounds. Although Winnebago bounced out of the troughs of other recessions, (although it nearly collapsed in 1991), this recession with the banking fiasco will not be as kind. Though Winnebago manages Debt and Inventory better than most, the low cash threshold, loyal 2200 employees, and rising accounts payable will put a strain in the company that will take some time to work through.
